Mountain huts & alpine pastures
Alpine pastures and huts on a hiking holiday in the Zell am See-Kaprun region
This hiking tour is very steep. The hiking trail seems to go uphill forever and takes us step by step deeper into the alpine nature of the Hohe Tauern. The yellow signs were right, this tour is neither short nor easy. But this is hiking. We actually do deserve a cosy break at an alpine hut now. You have not finished that thought yet ... there it appears at the horizon. The hut sits majestically high up on the ridge and welcomes tired, thirsty and hungry hikers. The flag is flying in the wind and there is no doubt - we will take an extensive break here and now. We look forward to cold drinks, regional homemade specialities and a picture-postcard view!
Hiking without a stop at a hut ...
... would be like skiing without snow - unthinkable. You can look forward to up to 50 alpine and mountain huts. They make hiking tours and mountain trails to what they actually are - a stunningly beautiful recreational space surrounded by the wonderful mountain world. Whether as shelter on the summit, as mountain hut at the edge of a forest or as alpine hut with pastures for cows and sheep - the diversity of mountain and alpine huts will delight you and you will fully enjoy your stop.
